We had some interesting street food but felt the prices were a little steep! 3000¥ for unagi. Shouldn’t spend more than one hour here if u are just wanting to soak in the atmosphere.

The food sold at the stores are sightly overpriced. However, the food is worth trying out such as its Uni and Oysters. It is very crowded during the morning and daytime. Moreover, the passageway in the market is quite narrow which made it even harder...More

Great market that goes through a long street covered with a glassroof. The only bad thing is that almost everything is just in Japanese but even that it deserves to be visited. You can enjoy little bites of things that are on sell. A must...More

It's a nice, clean market that sells different types of food, fresh seafood, goods etc. We would just walk around, find something interesting to try and would leave with full stomachs. Especially loved the scallop skewers cooked in butter and the fresh uni. Could get...More

Go after 10am as most shops will only open after 10. You can get food there as well as some kyoto speciality. It does get crowded so be aware.

Too much high-end shopping numbs the brain ;) This provides an interesting contrast. Lots of live seafood and all types of local ingredients and snacks. Not too crowded, easy to walk. Good place to shop because the prices are cheaper here. Note some of the...More

If you are in the area Nishiki Market is worth a look but don't make a special trip. Interesting enough for an hour stroll (if it's not too crowded and wasn't for my visit). The food is pretty average and not much variety. I'm not...More

Very crowded people constantly pushing each other. The food is mediocre and expensive for what you’re getting.

There a lot of little shops here, with lots of street food. I especially loved the sea food stall. You can sit down on the little stools and have some sashimi, sea urchin or fresh oysters. The giant oysters were JPY700 and absolutely delicous! Also...More

Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find
themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited
by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of
fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are
piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed
outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub
for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes.

The Nishiki market does not open until about 10am. Good to get there early before the crowds and before it gets too hot. There are long queues where the food is popular. Check the website for open days because the fish... More
